  1. I don't think "study level" purely implies that it is a professional product, used for real world training. No one said that and no one assumed airlines/flightschools are using desktop sim software as their primary means of training. (However, I've seen asian companies use it as a suplement during initial phases). The price of a simulation also has nothing to do with it being accurate or "study level" - I have seen and used a few 100k + € FNTP II sims that are used in flightschools worldwide, which had a very basic flight model, rather binary systems and not exactly up-to-date visuals. The high costs of those commercial sims, be it even desktop based, lies in the active support, certification by various authorities and regulatory bodies and usually live-service contracts with the provider. I could use Majestic Software here as an example again, with them aiming at the professional and commercial market with their upcoming TRAINING version of the DH8D. Again, there has to be a clear destinction between commercial use for real world training and sort of hobby-esque use for private entertainment and or learning. The term itself does not directly aim at one area or the other.
  2. We are not talking about physically perfect engine simulations here. All the points you make are valid. Study level for me personally means that I can pull up a real world manual, study the aircraft's systems and have the simulation behave exactly like it says in the manual, with all the systems affecting each other in one way or another. A living, breathing machine that talks to you so to speak, with proper system backlogic and non-binary, dynamic states that depend on various factors and subsystems, giving you an immersive experience and teaching you something new every couple of flights.Think of A2A planes or the Majestic Software Q400 to get the general idea. For instance, you can account for dry operating weights and dry operating CG's in the latter, as well as adjust the engine performance and wear factors, like is done with real world performance calculation software. To sum it up, the term "study level" means that you can study the real aircraft manual and apply it to the simulation. It also means that you never stop studying, as is the case in real world aviation.
  3. Stefan, I have to say, this is the most detailed and accurately modelled gear I have ever seen in any flightsim addon. Hats off! Looks just like the real deal.

    N1 going down when advancing thrust

    I have the same issue. When you advance power (and my joystick/htrottle has 0 spikes as all other aircraft work fine) the N1 first drops then rises.

    So how good a pilot are you?

    That is actually the MAJOR effect (downside) of sharklets. The reduced induced grad and thus reduced descent rate while maintaining or reducing the speed. Ask any Airbus pilot who has flown the sharklets. That's aerodynamics 101.

    So how good a pilot are you?

    Unable, because sharklets reduce the induced drag and thus make the descent capabilities a lot worse than on non-sharklet busses. Ask for an extended downwind. Unless you want to drop the anchor (gear), go full spoiler + AP off (stuka mode) and try your luck of course... just like the russians do it.

    AUTO Trim at lift off [v1.0.6, P3D v4.2]

    Can confirm this very behaviour on my end as well. The logic needs to be fixed. Shouldn't be too hard.

    Having exactly the same thing since release. Both in v3 and v4.2
  9. Will there be an option to swtich between the left and right seat? (basically switching between the animated sidestick). Would really add to the immersion during shared-cockpit ops.

    CRJ900ER Lufthansa D-ACNM

    Terrific livery! Very accurate as well, like one would expect from the one and only Holgi! And quite frankly, it doesn't look too bad on the CRJ either.

    Lufthansa CityLine D-ACNM Bombardier CRJ-900

    Nice! But please theck the "M" letter in the registration, as it's a bit different in reality and also please remove the warning label from the engines. I'll send you some reference pictures via. DM.
  12. It's not like they are ditching FSX and FSX:SE soon. The new Airbus series (A320 fam and A330) will all be available for FSX and P3D. FSX will only come with less features, most of which is just visual stuff like dynamic lights, rain, more animations etc. Look at the CRJ, that one is for pretty much all ESP-based sims.
  13. Well I have to agree. I've seen and used many FNPT's with horrible flight models that only cover basic stuff (and don't even allow things like sideslips or spins, heck even stalls just drop the nose like a brick wthout any buffet). But they are just that, FNPT's = procedure trainers. Same with Level-D's but those are generally much better in pretty much every aspect. What I am trying to say, even with all those "small" and in depth things there are still fundamentals like energy conservation and management, which most addons in FS simply don't do properly. You can't tell me you can fly a 400+ tonne 747 at like 20° alpha, full toga and get a 2000f/pm climb an NOT stall - we've all seen that video where a 747 stalls and goes out with a bang... Some deveopers who have an external flight model do this very well on the other hand. Stuff like energy conservation, sliding and slipping forces, torque effects, lift changes based on IAS etc. are wery well modelled and let's say, pretty authentic. Some developrs just get it, do it right and do it with passion. Others will simply never get it.
